Questions about Covid-19

When I understand things, my anxiety lessens. It is because I am ‘high risk’ that I have concerns and feel questions need to be asked by politicians, and scientists alike. If we understand how the virus works, we will understand how to reduce Covid-19, instead of going into it blindly.

The UK government has laid its Covid-19 recovery road map and wants children to go back into school by the 8th March. There are concerns from worried parents that unless teachers and assisting staff are fully protected, there is nothing to stop the virus spreading and their children catching Covid-19.

Professor Herb Sewell has said he believes the government have taken a massive gamble by vaccinating everyone with a first dose with a 12-week gap, before the second dose is given. It is because people are catching Covid between the first and second jab, that these issues need to be addressed.

We need to be able to understand how the virus works so we can live alongside it. The concerns from independent scientists also need to be addressed. Parents’ concerns need to be addressed.

It is only when we begin to understand how the virus works and how it has been able to mutate, that we can act and it will start to reduce for good.

  1. It isn’t hard to figure out how the virus has mutated, seeing as has been, quite literally, transported to other areas in the world where it would have to adapt to survive.

    I’m not a scientist, but I do understand enough about the science of the virus to see how this could happen. It also makes me seriously wonder if this was a man made virus seeing how quickly this virus mutated.

    It’s absolutely ridiculous that they are more concerned about getting kids back to school when those are prime breeding grounds for the virus.

    I made the mistake of commenting on an ex-friends post where they spoke about only wanting the kids to go back to school for free daycare, but doesn’t that seem kind of like the case?

    Also, there isn’t any common sense about the virus, when they’re still allowing overseas travel, which truly defeats the purpose of a lockdown.

    I’m worried that it’s going to get worse before it gets better, because people are refusing to do the right things.

    1. Thanks for your joined up, common sense thinking Randy. Like you, I can only hope common sense prevails and governments think about what’s happening with the virus first. Trying to get the economy started, mustn’t be at the cost of children, or their families.

      I hope this is revisited before it’s too late as there is potential for more lives to be lost. It may not even be pupils’ lives, but family they go back to; parents, brothers, sisters, elderly relatives who live with family.

      Also, there is some talk about this virus being man made by scientists. Our lifestyles are the reason we have it. And whilst we can’t turn back the clocks, scientists are telling us there is a little time for us to change.

      If Covid has taught us one thing, it’s that we need to change our attitudes to this crisis and to our lifestyles.

  2. I completely agree with Randy’s comments. I think we are much further away from getting a handle on this than people think we are.

    I have no doubt as lockdown measures are eased we will begin to see a resurgence in infections particularly in the UK, where the government’s policy of 12 weeks between the initial and the booster jabs is unproven.

    1. Ditto on your thoughts. We’ll just have to wait and find out. If you believe in ‘what goes around comes around’ this too will unravel.

      When anyone bases their judgments on ignorance of the facts and the ego, what they try to achieve will fail.

      Whilst I appreciate any PM will have had a hard time trying to work through the enormity of what is Covid, us wanting to listen is the first step.

      Mistakes have been made, only time will tell whether they continue.
